Classes for Children

Our Summer Art programs for children has been postponed for 2021.  Once it is safe to do on site activities, we will post the programs our website and our social media platforms.   

The Art Centre offers an environment that is creative, non-competitive and open-ended, allowing young artists  the freedom to explore their potential and nurture their self-esteem. New skills and concepts are presented with an engaging and contemporary approach. These classes will provide and amazing opportunity for learning and creativity enhanced by our permanent collection and current exhibitions.
Advance payment and registration are required for all classes and workshops.  No refunds will be issued after the start of the class or workshop.

Summer Art Programs TBA 2021

Please note that our Summer Art Programs have been cancelled for 2020.  For over 40 years the Public Art Centre have run summer art programs at the Art Centre and this year was shaping up to be the best summer ever.  So, it is with disappointment that we are announcing this development.  

With the first days of the summer program quickly approaching, too much is still unknown.  We cannot operate unless we are confident that we can maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone.  We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
